Selwyn College


Under the terms of a bequest by the late H. T. Bowman, applications are invited from former pupils of Nottingham High School for an annual Scholarship tenable at Selwyn College, Cambridge. The Bowman Scholarship is intended to assist with the fees and maintenance of a former member of Nottingham High School who wishes to read for an advanced degree of the University of Cambridge, or for the B.A. Degree as an affiliated student; or whose undergraduate course entails a fourth year of study for which the public funding element is not available. The Scholarship is tenable for one year but in certain circumstances may be renewed for a further one or two years. In determining its value, the College Council will take into account any other emoluments received by the Bowman Scholar, but it is not expected that it will ordinarily exceed £5,000 a year.

Application forms may be obtained from the Senior Tutor, Selwyn College, Cambridge, CB3 9DQ (email

The closing date for applications is 15 February.
